The space sector plays an increasingly pivotal role in the functioning of modern societies and their economic development as the use of satellite technology gives rise to new applications, uses and markets. Space Economy at a Glance offers a statistical overview of the global space sector and its contributions to economic activity using data from over 40 countries with space programmes, and identifies new dynamics in the space sector.

Budgets are usually spread across several government agencies (including defence), which makes them sometimes difficult to track in national accounts. The estimates provided here should therefore be considered as conservative.
